In short, yes you can. There are a number of solutions that involve installing an internal and external flue into your home. In many cases this is an easier job than you may think and we have done many such jobs across Surrey. It is always important to speak to an expert first though. In most cases we can install a flue system at the same time as installing your new stove or fire which will mean no chimney is no problem.
Houses Without A Chimney
A lot of newer properties simply never had effective chimneys build in. Some have existing flues for gas fires which can often be used but many just don’t have anything at all. In other situations we have been called to install a stove or fire into a part of a building that is too far away from the chimney to be connected. In these cases it is treated as a separate building and an external flue is fitted.
Below are some images detailing the installation of a flue into a flat roofed part of a larger building. The end result looks fantastic and allowed the owners to have a fire just where they wanted it!
You Can Have a Fire Without Having a House With A Chimney
Below is another example of a flue installation that had to go up through the loft of the property. You can see where safety precautions are added to prevent any heat damage or fire risk in the roof space.
